What are Words for, When No One Listens Anymore

Not really πŸ˜€ Title from an old song from the 80’s

Normally, that is how we communicate, right?! No, not really πŸ˜€

“If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice” Freewill – Rush (probably a quote from somewhere else)

There are several ways to not make a decision. One way is simply to remain silent and let time pass beyond the point where a choice needed, or not needed, to be made. Silence can be as loud, sometimes louder, than words πŸ˜€

Hear the silence

Words are important. WordPress! πŸ˜€ But you’ve heard the expression, it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it; so true. Intent. Emotion. The spaces between the words; the pauses.

The people without the ability to hear don’t use words. They use signs πŸ˜€ Now I’m wondering how often people who use sign miscommunication. I remember while I was in college, I’d watch people have sign conversations. They would on occasion have misunderstandings but I am going to guess they have fewer misunderstandings than people who only use words to communicate. You have to pay close attention when signing. People frequently listen only to the words being spoken.

Silly people πŸ˜€

Here’s another expression: it’s not what’s said; it’s what’s not said. Something like that.

Ironic. I just realized I am making an argument to consider devaluing words, at least slightly, using words πŸ˜€

Okay, here’s something I have said quite often through my life: gotta have a plan. More often than not, that involves words, ideas πŸ˜€

Idea. Thought. Think. Reason. Motive. Desire. Passion. Emotion. Feeling.

I spent the last 30 minutes flipping through the dictionary trying to find the words to describe what it means and why you should always have a plan. That’s the string of words. Each led to the next. By the end the words turned into…well πŸ˜€ … you can read πŸ˜€
